Korean 1985

Available transformations
to EPSG:4326
EPSG:4326 - WGS 84

Selected transformation

Method: Molodensky-Badekas (CF geog2D domain)

Remarks: Parameter values from Korean 1985 to Korea 2000 (1) (code 5189). Assumes Korea 2000 and WGS 84 can be considered the same to within the accuracy of the transformation.
